VPN IN OPERATIONAL TECHNOLOGY WHITE PAPER

Secure remote access in building automation and energy monitoring applications.

This document aims at presenting system integrators, installers and operators of energy monitoring and building automation applications a solution to protect their remote access to the target system. The proposed solution is a secure Virtual Private Network (henceforth VPN) tunnelling, described in the following chapters.

PHASE OR NEUTRAL LOSS

PHASE OR NEUTRAL LOSS IN BUILDINGS WHITE PAPER

Trivial failures which may cause very expensive chain effects.

Phase and neutral loss can be very costly failures for the end user. We will introduce some criteria and tools to reduce or clear their effects. After having a look at how electrical distribution systems are deployed, and at what happens in case of failure, we will show how to use some tools to quickly detect them and react before damage occurs. In this way the added value for the end user is huge in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the entire building.

RSGT SERIES: GENERAL PURPOSE SELF-LEARNING SOFT STARTER FOR 3-PHASE AC INDUCTION MOTORS UP TO 45 KW

Minimal setting thanks to the self-learning algorithm and real-time monitoring.

Lainate, July 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents its new series of soft starters.

The RSGT family is very easy to use soft-starters for AC 3-phase induction motors. In order to maximise the ease of use without compromising performance, only 3 settings are required (FLC, ramp-up, ramp-down).

The self-learning algorithm adjusts the soft starter’s parameters to work with different applications and varying load conditions. It is active at every start to ensure that the motor starts with the optimal settings all the time.The RSGT soft-starters are equipped with a Modbus/RTU communication port with a 2-wire RS485 connection, allowing the user to have a complete and easy real-time monitoring of the product. This serial communication protocol enables the detection of any deviations in performance and also provides sufficient historical data that facilitates troubleshooting activity in case of faults.

The integration of a Class 10 electronic overload provides an advanced motor protection and results in further space saving in the electrical panel. Phase sequence protection, overload function and dry run function can be easily enabled and disabled through the frontal push button.

“The drive for higher energy efficiency is impacting the world of industrial motors. As of July 2021, 3-phase motors from 0.75 kW to 1,000 kW must be IE3 efficiency or higher. Starting currents of higher efficiency motors can reach more than 10 times the motor rated current and the RSGT soft starters can counteract this issue by reducing the starting current by an average of 50%,” Brian Gauci International Product Specialist says. “With this launch it is our intention to further strengthen our product portfolio by enhancing the line of soft starters for general purpose applications and making it more attractive to distributors as well as expanding to North America and Europe.”

Developed in our competence centre in Malta, this soft starter series has been designed to provide our customers with a more advanced product offering in the HVAC, Water treatment, Agriculture and the Smart building market segments.

Main technical features
• Self-learning algorithm: optimises motor starts in every condition
• Best in class current reduction with three phase control
• Easy to use and set-up time savings: only 3 adjustments required
• Energy saving through internal bypass relays
• Robust design allows up to 12 starts per hour
• Torque controlled ramp down: smoother deceleration of pumps
• Versions up to 400 VAC are internally supplied: less wiring required
• Real-time monitoring via Modbus RTU communication over RS485 connection

THE NRG DIGITAL SOLID STATE RELAYS CAN NOW ADAPT TO LINE VOLTAGE VARIATIONS

Ensuring stable power output for optimal product quality.

Lainate, July 2021 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacturing, and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents a new feature on the NRG digital solid state relays, the voltage compensation.

With switching, monitoring and diagnostic capabilities available via the communication interface, the NRG digital solid state relays provide greater connectivity in industrial automation machinery offering manufacturers unlimited opportunities to improve productivity, predict equipment failure and provide remote access possibilities down to the solid state relay level.

Variation in mains voltage is a common issue that impairs the accuracy of the heating process. With voltage compensation, the NRG solid state relays are able to keep a constant power output despite any voltage fluctuations. Available on the RGx1P..N variants, voltage compensation ensures reduction of scrap and improved end-product quality.

“This new feature will complement the switching functionality of the NRG solid state relays to guarantee better temperature regulation”, Dora Lee Borg International Product Specialist says. “This is particularly useful for sensitive heating applications and also open loop temperature control systems.”

Developed in our competence centre in Malta, the NRG has been designed to suit any heating application where precise temperature control is crucial and where unplanned machine stoppages can result in a considerable loss of revenue.

Typical applications are plastic injection machines, packaging machines, drying and curing processes, semiconductor manufacturing, and glass tempering machines.

Main technical features
• NRG controller with PROFINET, EtherNET/IP™ or Modbus RTU interface
• Max. 32 NRG solid state relays (RG..CM..N) in 1 NRG bus chain
• NRG solid state relays go up to 660 VAC 65 A, 90 A (versions without heatsink)
• Selectable switching modes: ON/OFF, Burst, Advanced Full Cycle, Distributed Full Cycle, Phase Angle and Soft Start
• Voltage Compensation
• Predictive failure detection with Load deviation indication
• Read-outs: Current, Voltage, Power, Energy consumption kWh, Load and SSR Running hours
• Malfunction detection: Mains loss, Load loss, SSR short circuit, SSR over-temperature, Voltage/ Current / Frequency out-of-range
